Last night I was happy to find a very quick and easy recipe for raw chili on uncooking101.com.
It was fantastic! Flavourful, fresh, exciting and most of all, quick!
This has inspired me to post the very quick raw parsnip apple soup I whipped up the other day. I forgot to take a pic of the final product but you can imagine it looked like a bowl of white soup.
Instant Parsnip Apple Soup
3 large organic parsnips, peeled and roughly chopped
1 sweet organic fuji apple, core removed and chopped, skin on
a little bit of white onion, maybe 1/4 or 1/6 of a medium onion
1 cup home made almond milk (4 cups spring water, 1 cup almonds, blend, nut milk bag strain)
a touch of coconut oil, maybe 1 teaspoon, more if you want
some spring water, as much as it takes to get everything flowing but not to dilute too much
2 hefty pinches sea salt
Put everything in a vita mix blender and blend until smooth, adding more water as needed and taste for salt and stuff.
(I can't remember if I put a touch of fresh lemon juice in here, I don't think I did but if you feel the soup 'needs something' try a tiny squeeze
Not going to lie, I had made some almond milk earlier that morning and added a bit of vanilla bean to it, so if you are feeling adventurous add about 1/16 - 1/8 tsp of vanilla bean powder to your soup.
Let me know what you think!
